Programming for Kids

Over the past few months my 2 boys (7 and 9) have been having a good time in computer class. They are writing their first programs or should I say, games!! Ha! Microsoft has released this cute game programming tool for kids called Kodu.

It's great for teaching logic and a great introduction to learning programming interactions.

Give it a try!
